Ever the sportsman, top-ranked Tiger Woods says he voted for fellow golfer Padraig Harrington for PGA Tour Player of the Year, according to GOLF.com.
“It was nice to see Paddy play as well as he has,” Woods was quoted as saying in the article. “It was just a matter of – as I said, a matter of time. The confidence you get from winning one, and then two just proves it to you that one wasn’t a fluke, and it gives you all that confidence in the world. And look how he did it; he shot 32 on the back nine on both of them.”
Woods’ vote, notes reporter Michael Walker Jr., is particularly significant because the World No. 1 has voted for himself in the past.
On a semi-related note, we had no idea that Utah’s Healthsouth Medical Center – where Woods had arthroscopic surgery performed – served humble pie to its patients.
